    Computer crashing after playing a few games and then start


    I'm new here don't know if this is the right forum to post in. I recently installed Windows 8 64 bit from Windows 7 32 bit. I never had any problems really with the windows 7 32 bit but since upgrading to Windows 8 64 bit I am having this odd problem. I am a gamer, I have Steam with lots of games and so I play one then play another and another then I go to start a game (It isn't the same game) and the computer resets and does its thing. I have made sure all my drivers are up to date as I have heard that that can be the problem. Does anyone now of a fix or has this happened to you? Thanks

    Perhaps your architecture didn't modify during the upgrade. Games designed for 64bit architecture won't run on 32bit architecture.

    Look at the dump files and see if you can find the problem. They should list what process caused the crash. Check the tutorials here and at 7help.
